Knitting and Crochet @ BeadFX

Don't worry, we haven't gone crazy, sold off all our beads and replaced them with a ton of yarn!

This fall BeadFX will be offering two brand-spanking-new courses on how to crochet using beads and fine gauge wire. (And if you've had a look through the October issue of Bead & Button, you'll know just how hot bead crochet will be this fall!) Stephanie Dixon, a member of the Toronto Bead Society and avid "hooker", will be teaching basic (no crochet experience necessary!) and intermediate wire bead crochet classes, starting Saturday September 13th.

That same day, BeadFX will also be at the Waterloo County Knitters' Fair, with a selection of perle cotton, seedbeads and other knitting accoutrements. The Knitters' Fair, which runs from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm at Bingemans in Kitchener, will have more than 70 vendors displaying colourful yarns, knitting books, patterns and accessories.

Have you tried knitting with flexible beading wire?
